Hodlnaut news: Hodlnaut gets support from Singapore court

hodlnaut news

Hodlnaut news: the Singapore crypto project Hodlnaut has gained support from a local court. The project’s representatives announced this on its official website.

The court ruled that the management of Hodlnaut will now take over the temporary duties of the consulting firm EY Corporate Advisors. The company insisted that an employee of another consulting firm, Kairos Corporate Advisory, would manage the firm.

The court-appointed new managers mean that Hodlnaut has succeeded in obtaining legal protection from creditors, whom the company unilaterally left without access to assets when it curtailed services in early August because of the need to “stabilize liquidity.” The company is still unable to give an exact date for the resumption of cryptocurrency withdrawals.

Many between Binance and Hodlnaut chose the latter project for a lot of reasons. But after recent events, things will change. Earlier, it was reported that law enforcement in Singapore demanded $127 million in USDT and USDCstablecoins from Hodlnaut. This was reported in a Hodlnaut post on the official website, but the material was later removed for unknown reasons. A saved copy is still available in Google’s cache. The post claimed that Hodlnaut was involved in two lawsuits:

The first is a motion by the company to place the case under interim court administration to avoid involuntary liquidation of assets because of possible litigation with creditors.

The second is a petition for judicial review of certain Singapore police orders ordering Hodlnaut to transfer $127 million in Stablecoin from its Samtrade Custodian depository account.

Hodlnaut assures that if they follow the law enforcement order, the company will have no assets left to implement a judicially administered business recovery plan or even to pay users “in the event of liquidation of the company.”

Tether full audit

Tether auditor company, Friedman LLP, was fined $1.5 million for improper services from 2017 to 2020. This was reported in a press release from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the exchange regulator, the Tether auditing company didn’t properly develop audit procedures in its work for the iFresh product network. The company also didn’t exercise the necessary due diligence in auditing another unnamed company. Although the press release does not explicitly identify Tether, the issuer of the USDTstablecoin, as Tether, Friedman’s firm was Tether’s auditor from just 2017 to 2018.

Tether full audit

Earlier, a New York County court required Tether to disclose the USDT Stablecoin’s collateral and prove the assets linkage to the U.S. dollar. According to the court order, Tether is required to provide the company’s financials, income statements, cash flow statements, and so on. However, the time frame in which Tether must provide the statements is not specified.

The lawsuit is part of a legal battle between investors and Tether’s parent company, iFinex. The plaintiffs believe that Tether manipulated the cryptocurrency market by issuing unsecured USDT with the intention of artificially inflating cryptocurrency prices.

Earlier we reported that Vitalik Buterin announced the release of his book.
